Descriptions

As soon as the master has left for the war, the steward of the castle declares his love for him to the master's wife, but is contemptuously rejected. To take revenge, the steward takes the witch of Seville, who gives him a magic cap; the man substitutes it for the one used by his mistress. As soon as she puts it on, without suspecting anything because it is identical to her, she is seized by a savage impulse of violence. The steward calls in the dignitaries of the church, in front of which the woman behaves in such a way as to be considered a witch and condemned to the stake. A servant loyal to the castellan runs to warn his master: he returns and discovers that the spell is due to the cap. He frees his wife from the spell, kills the unfaithful steward and at the stake already prepared for the innocent wife he brings up the real witch, that of Seville.

A most perfect production from the ltala Company called The Witch of Savile, a tragic story acted in a magnificent manner, which cannot fail to rival the other successes of the company.
